Review of New Romance from Kathryn Springer and Kindle Fire Giveaway!

About the book:
This handsome firefighter makes a living coming to the rescue, but Gin doesn't need a man to fight her battles.

After Raine's dad walked out, Ginevieve Lightly never lived in one place too long, a rambling lifestyle that defined her daughter's youth. When their car dies in Banister Falls, Wisconsin, Gin promises Raine they can stay until she finishes her senior year of high school. Gin will do anything to make sure her daughter has a bright future . . . a future that's compromised when Raine reveals she's pregnant.

Dan Moretti has only ever called Banister Falls home. After losing his best friend in a tragic accident, Dan devoted himself to responding to fires, rescuing the helpless, and guiding Cody Bennett, his best friend's son, through life. With Cody being the epitome of the good kid, it was an easy job. Until he says four little words: "The baby is mine."

Knowing gossip of Raine's pregnancy will erupt sooner or later in the small town, Gin's reflex is to grab the suitcase and escape to a new city, a new life. But with each passing day, Gin's feet stay rooted in Banister Falls, and she falls a little more for this local firefighter who shows her not all men abandon women at the first sign of smoke.

As Gin and Dan do the best they can to guide the two teenagers through their early entry into adulthood, they discover together that romance can bloom in the rockiest of situations. And God can turn the pieces of a broken past into a beautiful new beginning.

My review:  I absolutely loved this book!  Gin's sassy attitude and quick one-liners were hilarious; both she and Dan were my favorite characters.  Dan was such a wonderful guy, always there for Cody and his mom through the years and now for Gin and Raine.  He was loyal and sweet and caring; there really aren't enough good words to describe him!  I really liked Raine and Cody, too.  It was very cool how we got a glimpse of past events through a memory of a character, for example, we got to see Raine and Cody's relationship as they met and fell for each other.  The romance between Dan and Gin was sweet and funny, as she tries to hold him at arm's length because she has trouble trusting anyone, especially a man.  Dan's family was wonderful, too, how they drew her in.  The only character I had a harder time with was Evie, Cody's mom, because I felt like she was taking advantage of Dan, but she definitely made up for everything by the end of the book.  The faith elements were cool, too, as in Gin's case especially she's made aware of how God has been watching out for her all along.  It didn't seem like Dan knew about her new-found faith, though, which I think he should have before telling her how he felt.  The story was well-written and I found myself rereading parts before I even moved on to the next page.  I didn't want it to be over!  I highly recommend this book if you like romance or stories that deal with a tough situation with humor.

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
